Just because Orton overcame 29 other Superstars to earn his opportunity to headline WrestleMania, that doesn’t mean he has a clear path to the WWE Title just yet. After all, The Road to WrestleMania can be extremely hazardous, especially when someone is out to get retribution on you.

Perhaps the biggest obstacle for The Viper right now is Luke Harper. After weeks of friction between Orton and Harper, Bray Wyatt delivered Sister Abigail to his dreaded disciple last week. In response, Harper came after The New Face of Fear in the Royal Rumble Match and sent a clear message that he will be gunning for the entire Wyatt Family moving forward.

So, it is safe to say that before WWE’s Apex Predator can step onto The Grandest Stage of Them All, he is going to have to step into the darkness to settle his family affairs.
